Ubuntu – How to install “gdb-arm-none-eabi” on Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic Beaver)

18.04armgdb

In previous versions of Ubuntu, GDB for ARM Cortex processors was part of the package gdb-arm-none-eabi. Searching https://packages.ubuntu.com/ for gdb-arm-none-eabi for Ubuntu 18.04 doesn't return any results. Am I missing something or why isn't there any GDB for ARM any more?

Best Answer

I had the same question, and googled some more. It seems that with modern GDB you no longer need a GDB for your specific architecture. Just use GDB.

(seems to work on my older 16.04 workstation as well. I've been typing arm-none-eabi-gdb all those years, while just "gdb" would've worked just as well! .....)
